The Thrifting Gods Giveth...

...and taketh away.

I've been on the hunt for a wool hat and mittens set and was pretty excited to find one at Goodwill yesterday, right on top of the hat pile. It was a block of black with small snowflakes on top of a charcoal grey block, meaning it would match all of my coats (don't deviate much from the black-grey-white pallete).

Too bad I went on post-thrift laundry autopilot and just threw it all in the wash together.

I don't think it would even fit Violet now it's so shrunken, even after soaking it in solutions each of hair conditioner (wool is hair after all), borax, and mild soap. BOO.


  1. Reverse felting never, ever works. They're dead. :(

  2. Maybe you could re-purpose it as a coin purse or a bowl. Or toss it in with the burn creams and I'll see if I can come up with something for you.

  3. bummer dude. i'll keep my eyes peeled when I worship at the temple of Savers!
